    Hi, after tipping my sit in fishing kayak a few years back and almost drowning in frigid temps, my main concern for buying a new Yak is the tipping point and stability for side to side movement. I’m fairly tall at 6′-2″ and weigh 270 so I have a high center of gravity. What would you recommend for my use? Speed is not a concern and standing is something I probably will never attempt at my height, size and age. Thanks!

    Why the max paddler weight rating on the Tripper and not the Kilroy? I am 6’3″, 270 and am looking fore somethg more budget minded. Would the Tripper work the same as the Kilroy?

      You could fit! You would be pretty far back in it which might cause the river running to be a bit swirly though

    Looking for a skirt that will fit the Jackson 1.5. Any ideas on who could supply one?

    Two questions please: Is there a good rudder (feet steering) available for the Cuda LT? Has anyone put a Torqeedo 403 on a Cuda LT?

    Got a 2017 Mayfly late last year. What do I do about draining the hull? Can’t imagine loading or unloading when its full of water. Concerned about rain storms during travel. Does a drain plug have to be installed? Seems it would be standard equipment considering how essential it would be.
